Do you love the Special Fried Rice from the Chinese shop?

Well surprise, surprise it is dead easy to make at home and you will be amazed at just how yummy it is!  Now you can whip up a batch of Special Fried Rice at home for family and friends – for only a couple of dollars!  It is a great way to make meat stretch further as it is such a filling side dish – or it can be eaten on its own as its own meal.

We always use Jasmine Rice for any fried rice recipes, but especially our Special Fried Rice recipe – it gives it that authentic flavour and is just a little bit sweeter in taste than the other varieties.

Remember though that cooked rice should be kept in the fridge for a maximum of two days.  Cooked rice eaten after this time is the number one cause of food poisoning!  So when in doubt – chuck it out!

If you were wondering about the history of the Traditional Special Fried Rice recipe – it was actually first cooked in the Sui Dynasty in China which was 589-618 AD.  The Chinese had a taboo against wasting food (smart people!) – so the Fried Rice recipe was developed to avoid wasting cooked leftover rice.
